Jens Lekman Covers Boyz II Men

Motown Philly’s back again, this time in the Swedish hands of Jens Lekman. It’s true, the silent one did a cover of Boyz II Men’s “Water Runs Dry” a couple nights ago at Google Googie’s Lounge as part of his “special guest” role for countrywoman and labelmate Frida Hyvönen . Boys II Men’s original showcased their four voices and flowing white linens: Boys II Jens is Lekman by his lonesome, accompanied by a piano and the Men’s sweet sweet words.

He makes that his own. Curious what he’d do with this.
